Kiwi with cerebral palsy climbs tower

Monday 19 Nov 2012 12:01 p.m.

A 22-year-old New Zealander has become the first person with cerebral palsy to climb Melbourne's Eureka Tower.

Jordon Milroy, who was born with cerebral palsy, took just 70 minutes to climb the tower's 88 levels, with all the money raised going towards buying off-road wheelchairs for disabled people in Samoa.

It's his second big climb – earlier in the year he tackled Auckland's Sky Tower.

Milroy says he wants to climb all the world's towers – next on the list is New York's Empire State Building.
